Silence of the lambs - Clarice getting hunted by Bill with the night-vision goggles on.

In the early 90s I was on an inter-city bus in Spain.  There was a telly at the front of the bus, so they could show films for the passengers. This night, they were showing El Silencio de los Corderos.  Every bus or train journey I've ever been on ends with people putting their coats on and getting their luggage ready 5 minutes before reaching the destination; but not this one. The bus pulled in to the terminus when Clarice and Buffalo Bill were stalking each other and nobody moved. We all sat there for 5 or 10 minutes after the bus had stopped, because we had to watch the film (or at least that scene) through to the end.

It's Isabelle Adjani, I'd be too busy wanking myself blind to notice anything scary.

She's lovely, that scene is a challenging wank though.

Pretty much most of No Country for Old Men.


Especially the scenes with Javier Bardem.

The coin toss scene in the gas station in particular.


More the slow build up to the action here, but the way it’s filmed and the score just perfectly raises your anticipation for what you know is coming.

The hitman driving the Dodge Charger was Bill Hickman who was a real stunt driver. The guy who slides off his motorcycle during the chase is Bud Ekins, who doubled for McQueen when jumping the barbed wire in The Great Escape.


Final little bit of trivia, as Zodiac gets a mention a few pages back, McQueen had worked with Dave Toschi, the real detective on the Zodiac case (played by Mark Ruffalo In Zodiac), and based his character off him and copied his gun holster.


Ok, I’ve bored you enough with my love of this film.
